Bouonnefemme at Hamptonne
Meet Rose Le Brun, the Bouonnefemme at Hamptonne, who will let you in on local secrets and village gossip. Rose’s predecessor, Old Maud, had been at Hamptonne for years, but she travelled to St Aubin to see family and never returned. Perhaps the plague got her - they had a lot of it down there.

Rose was born in the parish of St. Lawrence in 1606 and lived in the Vingtaine du Coin Motier, where Hamptonne House stands, all her life. She serves as housekeeper for Jurat Laurens Hamptonne, who himself witnessed Rose lugging a large poutchie of apples up the hill, and thought her constitution would be fitting to take charge of his household.
